The 223 Howa 1500 Mini is a lightweight rifle made with durability and portability, and it boasts a great quick release magazine along with a softer recoil pad. It has the same push-feed bolt with dual-opposed locking lugs as other Howa 1500 rifles, however, the Mini Action has a much shorter bolt making it a lighter and trimmer action, and it is also almost an inch shorter - all this ultimately makes the Howa much lighter overall! Along with all the great factory specs, it's clear that the 223 Howa Mini 1500 proves to be an excellent hunting rifle of great value.
Howa Mini Action chamber and bolt are 12% shorter than regular short actions with shorter bolt throw for faster reloads. 18½" barrel, three-position safety, and H.A.C.T. two-stage trigger. Factory equipped with a ten round, synthetic detachable magazine. Lightweight and Fast!
